"India By Bus" 2017

International Stories

While working with an organizaiton receiving those exiting human trafficking in India during January of 2017, our team of seven traveled the cities of Bangalore and Chennai by bus. These bus rides to and from the center were often solemn and hushed. It was during these quiet moments that I photographed the bustling street scenes of these cities, particularly the women and girls who caught my eye.

"The Walls of Belfast" 2019

If the walls of Belfast, Northern Ireland could talk, the unspeakable violence they'd share would include feuds between classes, neighbors, and families over the course of the period of political turmoil that overtook the city from the 1960's-1990's . Now, the walls do talk, although they share messages of peace, of protest, and of the remnants of strong Irish/British nationalism.

Northern Ireland's working classes make up the inhabitants of the Falls Road and the Shankill Road, separated by the "peace lines," a wall that separates the two. The Falls Road is known for being predominantly Irish Catholic while the Shankill is predominantly British Protestant. Due to a variety of factors including ethnic clashes, religious differences, and political problems, these communities have remained segregated, even though the Good Friday Agreement was signed in 1998 to end the violence between the communities.
